We spent a few hours at the museum. You can enjoy your visit from an artistic, technology, or historical perspective. If you need something to do on a rainy day, and you are within 45 minutes, it is worth a visit. If not, my personal preference is to spend the day hiking. Free for teenagers and children.

It had been 15 years since my last visit to the museum, and it's even better now than it was then. The demonstration areas have been expanded with more variety - we saw ones on making and using fiber optics, glass blowing (2 demos, both making pitchers that day), making small glass figures (fish, etc.), and ones about industrial glass....

Don't miss the Corning Museum of Glass in New York State. I went for a visit with my family many years ago. I purchased a small souvienier of glass. I still have this as a momento of the trip. Jane H.

Great learning and fun! An amazing museum. Great place for anyone interested in both art and science. Also very important to everyday items containing glass. Could also be considered historical.

I'm not particularly a museum person, but was I ever surprised about the Corning Museum of Glass. I liked everything about it. They had very informative and interesting programs and exhibits. The quality of glass art was amazing. I stopped here quite by accident and am so thankful I did.

Plan on spending 3-6 hours in this large & wonderfully-designed exhibit space. Admission tkts are good for two days. The variety of glass objects, sculpture and art will surprise you & the multiple demonstrations of glass-blowing techniques are engaging.

I only had about three hours to visit the Corning Museum of Glass. I ´managed to see quite a bit, see some of the demonstrations and catch part of a tour but a short visit is really not worth the admission price. I heard that my tickets was good for two days but did not know ´this in advance so... More

This museum definitely was more than my family was expecting when we stopped on our way down from Niagara Falls. First, the building itself is incredibly lovely, and when we visited the modern art section, the setup of the exhibits were executed wonderfully so as to really hi-light the art. We then went to a blowing glass demonstration in their... More

One of the nicest museums I have ever visited! It has a mix of art, science, and history, which gives it something that everyone in your group to enjoy. Add to that the opportunity to make something from glass for a very reasonable price, and you have a good day. The town was also very nice to explore, although small.... More

My wife and I read about the glass making class so we sign up via the internet. What a great thing. My wife made a flower sculpture and I made a glass holiday ornament. There are numerous things you can make and this is what we chose. The flower was very hands according to my wife, no glass blowing involved,... More
